HZO’s Insights from IWCE 2015


Every year since 1977 the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) has been the authoritative annual event for communications technology in the working world. IWCE features over 350 exhibitors, showcasing the latest products and trends in the industry. Nearly 10,000 attendees make their way to the show from various industries including government/military, public safety, utility and transportation. This year was no exception, hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees all clamored to see the latest and greatest innovations in the communications market.

2015 was the first time that HZO has exhibited at IWCE, and we have to say, it was a great event. For some time now, HZO has been interested in the communications market, especially in two-way radios. IWCE proved to be a mecca for two-way radio enthusiasts. Everywhere you looked there were radios; radios for first responders to military to outdoor enthusiasts and everywhere in between. Some are simple, others are complex, but all of them have one thing in common; they NEED to work.

Two-way radios have long been protected from the elements using mechanical seals, gaskets and plugs. These seals have been tolerable so far, but they have some serious drawbacks; longevity, durability and cost just to name a few. Not to mention, the people who use these radios generally don’t treat them with a whole lot of delicacy and tenderness, and honestly, why should they? These radios are meant to be used in unsympathetic environments. Whether it’s in the middle of the Atlantic on an oil rig, the pocket of a fireman or behind enemy lines, these radios will find their way into less than desirable situations. So what happens if a radio is dropped or cracked and the seal is breached? Or a gasket malfunctions? That’s where HZO comes in.

HZO offers a different solution; a complete solution. Our robust nanotechnology creates a thin film barrier between the vital circuitry of the device and any liquid, dust or debris, making the device entirely waterproof and thoroughly protected. No seals, no gaskets, no cases, just full protection from anything Mother Nature can throw at you. Furthermore, HZO offers more than just protection, HZO offers peace of mind. The confidence that in a critical situation when you are relying heavily on your device, it will perform.

IWCE 2015 was an amazing event. Great conversations were had, amazing technology was showcased, and most importantly, valuable insights were gained. We couldn’t have had a better experience and we can’t wait until next time!
